December 20 @ 7:00 pm
Come and enjoy a beautiful candle-lit evening filled with captivating music from the magnificent Canoryon Lowen choir
Guests will be seated in the atmospheric Smoking Room at Boconnoc House
Canoryon Lowen is enjoying its 20th Anniversary Year, having been formed in the village of St Neot by Nick and Jenny Hart.
Originally a choir of 16 members, Canoryon Lowen has allowed its membership to grow to the mid-thirties, with evenly balanced numbers in all sections, with singers drawn from a wide area. Janet Wright has joined the musical team and co-directs with Nick.
This much travelled choir has sung in Prague, Florence, Venice, Cortina, Cork, Cobh, Lorient, as well as Coventry Cathedral and venues all over Devon and Cornwall. It has received commissions for new works by both the Royal Cornwall Museum and the National Maritime Museum, for which it has received prestigious awards from the Cornish Gorsedh. Nick was made a Bard of the Gorsedh for creativity in music, for his opera “A Daughter’s Tale”.
Doors open at 7.00pm with the concert starting at 7.30pm.
Each half will be approximately 40 minutes with a 20 minute interval where guests can enjoy delicious homemade mince pies and festive treats.
Proceeds from tickets sales for this event will be donated to the charity MIND.
